The 1966 Dodge Charger is the first year for the now-iconic name. So with such an important coupe, we are thrilled to have one that keeps a very vintage style with only the right well-integrated upgrades. So check out the sleek paint, distinct interior, and enhanced V8 power on this sharp-looking classic.
<br><br> The bright white paint is a more recent upgrade that has a terrific glow that seems to draw added attention to this car's crisp and clean lines. Dodge was catching up to the new craze of more personal sports cars started by the Mustang, so their historically low production numbers are especially true for the mid-year introduction of these 1966 coupes. But part of the reason why these were a little late to the party was that they were getting the design right. More than just the fastback roofline, this one has some very thoughtful design elements. It starts with the bright full-width grille, which looks absolutely cool with the optional hidden headlights. The bright side moldings start here and run continuously over the Charger's rear kick up, and it doesn't stop until the wide rear bumper. The result is almost like a wraparound effect of brightwork. Plus, the rear full-width taillight panel is a hallmark element that we still look for today on the modern Charger. Bright chrome bumpers, clear glass, good window felts, and new American Racing alloys made to look like classic Mopar road wheels are all part of the thoughtful quality package.
<br><br> The interior really shows off how the first charger was a personal car. The designers made something quite unique, including giving everyone their own individual bucket seat with a center console in-between. We love how this one has bright white upholstery to go with the exterior color, but some higher traffic areas like the carpets are done in black. This thoughtful style also extends to vintage details, including the working pillar courtesy lights and the classic AM radio that's there for display. This even appears to be a factory A/C car (the controls are in place but it will need components to return the function.) The gauges are cool aircraft-inspired dials that have a very modern glow at night. You get a three-spoke sports steering wheel, and Chrysler fans will recognize the simple but elegant shifter for the automatic transmission.
<br><br> This was born a big block coupe, and so it's nice to see a 440 cubic-inch V8 still filling the engine bay. After all, this displacement was only offered for 1966 Chargers. We're told the engine block was painted when the rest of the car was, and it certainly has the look of investment with the clean turquoise block, bright valve covers, a matching air grabber, and an overall tidy presentation. Plus, this was upgraded with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock air-gap intake, and a more aggressive cam that adds power and a sweet tune to the dual exhaust. It makes for a solid setup for muscle car fun or just cruising. And this all-around driving appeal is furthered by the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and newer Copper Cobra tires.
<br><br> The sale comes complete with the factory buildsheet, owner's manual, and service manuals. They have already made the right investments in this significant Mopar, and so it's time for you to enjoy it. Call today!!!
